Revival Of True Worship

Key Verse

Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and they said, The LORD, he is the God… (1Kings18:38, 39)

Text — 1 Kings 18:30-40


One meaning of revival is awakening strong interest in religion. When people have lost deep passion in the true worship of God, there is need for revival. Jesus said, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:23). Instead of true worship, Israel turned to the   worship of Baal. God had to discipline them with famine for three and a half years, until Elijah came and restored true worship.

Prophet Elijah in our text, was used by God to restore true worship in Israel. Christians need to also pray for personal and national revival of true worship. True worship is characterized by love for God, an unbroken fellowship with the Triune God, studying and meditating on God’s Word, as well as prayer and praise. You must be born again to have the grace for true worship. True worship is devoid of unscriptural preaching, teaching, music, dance, and unholy lifestyle. Unsaved youths must repent of all sins for acceptable worship.


There is need for revival.


God is looking for true worshippers.

Prayer for today

Rain down the fire of true worship on me, oh Lord
